Each webinar will address a different issue that affects the social and emotional development of our children and young people, and explores why this may happen.
Thrive Insight No. 2
When the Bubble Bursts
Dealing with disappointment
Next in our series of Thrive Insights, we continue to explore the impact the Covid-19 pandemic has had on children and young people and how we can support them. They return to school and yet face the ongoing uncertainty of what could happen with their bubble of classmates and school staff and if they will go into lockdown again.
The experience of going into lockdown and then reconnecting has led to significant challenges for children and young people, as well as the adults working with them. New restrictions, changing local lockdowns and the real possibility of class or year bubbles being sent home, has created a very strange environment. This ever fluctuating situation will be leaving many children and young people feeling disorientated and disconnected. It will be provoking a variety of strong feelings such as anger, grief and confusion and affecting their behaviour.
During the two-hour webinar, Thrive trainers will explore some of the different ways that, as adults, we can support children and young people to feel steady during the turbulence and how to respond if their bubble bursts. They will discuss how you can plan for this with children, helping them to anticipate, and share with you some useful ways of responding to this.
